The service is now available for monthly subscription under two categories – business and enterprise – with prices starting at ₹ 1,865 per user for business subscribers, and at ₹ 1,555 per user for enterprise ones.

Businesses can choose a configuration based on their requirements. The plans for both categories start with a basic configuration of one vCPU, 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, and go all the way up to eight vCPUs, 32 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

According to Microsoft, the business plans are ideal for smaller organisations that want a simple way to buy, deploy, and manage cloud computers, while the enterprise plans are suitable for organisations that want to manage their cloud computers with Microsoft Endpoint Manager and take advantage of integrations with other Microsoft services.
